Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The first step would be to simplify the fractions

Since our fractions are already simplified we will just pick our denominators  and find their LCM.

FOR EXAMPLE IN 9/16 9 IS THE ENUMERATOR WHILE 16 IS THE DENOMINATOR

our denominators are 16, 13 and 17

To find LCM you get the prime divisors of each number. Then pick the all the divisors from the number in which they are majority

16 =2*2*2*2

13 =1*13

17 =1*17

LCD = 2*2*2*2*13*17

=3536

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
